Forum: GratefulDead Subject: 2 From The Vault Alligator> Caution 8/23/68 ?

On the expanded version of "Two form the Vault" they add the "Alligator Suite" that was first on as filler on the "Anthem" cd . From what I read (here and on LIA 's pages), this is the only thing from 8/23 officially released; the original issued 2FTV is all taken form 8/24/68 . So I take this to be correct ? .
As for the issue itself, I have always preferred the 69 Live Dead period, but I was very impressed with this 68 show(s) more that I have ever been before . The Faster "St. Stephen", the tremendously exciting "11" , and the "New Potato" come to mind . Less than a year later, they have a heavier, darker (more surly ?) sound, in comparison to this more exuberant, "youthful" take on the same material .
I wonder , if the rest of 8/23 is multi tracked if they will release it someday ?

Well go figure - I bought my copy 15 yrs. ago so I'm missing out on the funky reptilian thing. I do need to add some alligator to my collection. Any downloadable suggestions?

The missing Alligator>Caution is an extra on the Anthem cd

It is streamable here as part of the 8/23/68 show .

I asume, if I what I read is correct, this bit is from 8/23 .
